Blue Jays MiLB Recap – The Bisons earn a late win
By Craig Borden
Buffalo Bisons @ Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Win 2-1)
Drew Hutchison had a strong outing as the Bisons score late to get the win. Hutch looked great as he scattered six hits and a pair of walks. The right-hander allowed just one earned run and collected six strikeouts.
Hutchison also threw 60 of his 90 pitches for strikes, and this start goes to show Hutch is still a solid pitcher when he can pound the strike zone. Chad Jenkins came in during the 7th to get the win after two innings of work. Jenkins allowed just one hit and a pair of walks. Chad Girodo came on for the save and threw a shut down 9th inning. A great night from the pitching staff led to a Bisons win in this low scoring affair.
Pitching Grade: A
The Bisons were able to scrounge just enough offence together in this one to support Hutchison’s start. Jesus Montero continues to rake as he collected another multi-hit game. Montero is now the owner of a 13-game hitting streak. Casey Kotchman collected an RBI single in the 5th to tie the game at one apiece. In the 9th inning, Jon Berti reached base on a double to right. David Adams then doubled to left to score Berti. The pinch-hit double by Adams put the Bisons on top 2-1 for the win.
Offensive Grade: B-
Line of the game – Drew Hutchison 6 IP, 6 hits, 1 ER, 2 Walks, and 6 strikeouts

A Rowdy Tellez homer was not enough to keep the Fisher Cats in this game. Tellez provided the only offence for the Cats on Friday as he cracked his third home run of the season. The home run would be one of just two hits gathered by the Cats. The Mets pitchers dominated the New Hampshire hitters throughout this one. Jason Berken pitched six innings and allowed all four runs. Dominic Smith‘s two-run home run was the biggest blow in the 1st inning. This got the Mets off and running and they would not let go.

Dunedin Blue Jays @ Daytona Tortugas (Loss 1-7)
A decent start to the game ended in a rout. The D-Jays pitchers combined to give up two homers and 5 earned runs. The defense did not help much in key moments as two un-earned crossed. Tob Robson allowed the bulk of the runs ( 4 R, 2 ER) in his 4.2 innings of work. Brad Allen had similar difficulties as he allowed three runs in his 2.1 innings of work. Ryan McBroom was the only offense as he cracked a solo home run in the 8th. Jonathan Davis collected the only multi-hit game as he went 2-for-3 with a double. Not much going in the D-Jays’ direction in this one.
Pitching Grade: C-
Offensive Grade: C-
Line of the game – Ryan McBroom 1-3 with a home run.
